, which create a rich ethnic mosaic. oufocus is boston, massachuse, part of a megalopolis located on the northeastern seaboa othe iteds. macaciopulio part of a megalopolis locahave taken root in older seainner-city neighborhoods. in recent decades, these neighborhoods deteriorated, with a downward spiral in infrastructure, services and opportunities. bunow stons bouncing back. with a downward spiral we'll see how relative location to the central business district, or cbd, is important to the development of these neighborhoods-- how so much can ride on their being part of federally-funded enterprise zones and how geographic information systems, or gis, can be used in addressing some difficult urban economic and social issues. boston, massachusetts. once a great port, it's now a world leader in high tech, higher education, bmedicine and finance. but like most u.s. cities, boston lost many jobs and middle-class residents to the suburbs. it's a regional problem-- part of the widening gap between the wealthiest and the poorest americans. this disparity has glaring spatial symptoms. ( r
at the stage in boston, as a matter of fact, where the crowd, a lot more subdued as you might expect is awaiting mitt romney to step forward and at some point i suspect soon, we will hear from the former governor of massachusetts who as we said is in boston. he will come forward to acknowledge he has been defeated despite running a very tough and hard campaign against an incumbent as has been noted many times, this is the first time since franklin roosevelt has been re-elected with unemployment this high. but here we are. >> that was a key issue in the exit polling tonight, derek. people talking about the economy and trying to find a best way forward. there were so many undecided voters who are trying to decide do we stick with the current course. is it change that we need. the economy and its progress out of one of the worst recessions we have ever seen. a key issue in this undecided women voters. so many elements we didn't even have 4 years ago. >> we talked about how close the election would be. if the numbers hold up and just perhaps president obama gets florida or virginia, the
'm in touch as we speak with people up in boston and they're feeling very good about virginia. they continue to feel very good about the night. however, to the point of your original question, this is all about how people feel about their personal economic circumstances and i think as split as this country is, people do have is a different view of what is going to work. i think democrats are trying to convince the american people that more government spending, more stimulus, larger government, higher taxes for some, is going to work to create jobs and some people buy that. i personally don't. i think the empirical evidence suggests otherwise, including across many of these battleground states with republican governors who have lowered taxes and spurred economic growth. >> so many ways that is exactly what tonight is all about. we'll come back to carly and you gentlemen more in the coming moments. we'll head live to omaha headquarters and romney headquarters for the mood there. >> and then at the top of the hour, polls are closing in 16 states and washington, d.c., including florida, pennsylv

running the boston marathon and you see the ribbon at the end, and you're like look, we're almost done. >> listen and also remember for president obama, this is his last campaign in his life. this is an end of a political career in that sense. so it's got to have some sort of nostalgia. but the emotion, the charged up, the scrutiny they've been under. the schedule they've been under. both of them, it's a day full of emotion. >> michelle obama, much tougher than i've heard her. >> -- defend her husband. >> let me tell you something, personally wasn't happy when i said it but i said seriously your wife blows you aware on campaigning. i've seen her speak without notes, without teleprompter and she really goes all in, and she's a phenomenal campaigner. >> but iowa, the place is really important for this president. because the people he was talking to there are the people who gave him the legs politically that allowed him to become president of the united states. you think about when hillary clinton was in there for the caucuses, remember, and how it was clinton, it was clinton, it was edwa

. first we start with john roberts who is live in boston where he's been traveling with the mitt romney campaign, and an empty room behind you today, john. >> reporter: it is an empty room. we feel like that final scene in ferris bueller's day off saying why are you still here, it's over go home. the romney campaign is scratching its head trying to figure out what happened yesterday. they clearly thought they had enough votes in florida, virginia, and ohio to carry things over-the-top. they were talking with their get out the vote people, who said they were getting them out to the polls and we think we can carry this off. and suddenly puff. it has to be a bitter disappointment after six long years, the hours put in and the money spent. he dead his best not to show that in his concession speech as he appealed to his supporters to embrace the very best of america. >> we look to our parents, in the final analysis everything depends on the success of our homes. we look to job creators of all kinds, we are counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward. and we look to democrats and repu

amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. and new jersey transit will also start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system continues to make advances. the "m" train linking queens to manhattan just started running, but there are still no trains running below 34th street where half of manhattan remains in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways, they're now waiting in those long lines for buses. for those who drive into new york city, the lines at city bridges stretched for miles yesterday, enough to make you turn around and just stay home. it's simply not worth it. it will take all day to get in in some cases. in an effort to ease gridlock inside the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan to have at least three passengers for the rest of the week. there are checkpoints set up on the way into manhattan with cars not meeting the three-person rule, those cars turned away. and you're only beginning to make your way into new york if you're lucky enough to find gas for your cars. about 80% o

new york. i can criticize new york. somebody from boston wants to come down to my city, they're going to have a problem. so the feels was mitt romney was never one of them. bobby jindal has always been. he was elected -- he was really embraced by the tea party ways. and you know, so he's -- he's really -- appeals to the entire electorate at this point just in terms of where he's come from. the positions he's held. he's not big on state-based exchanges. he's already rejected those. scott walker is probably going to come out against them on friday. >> john: i think you're right. >> john casey is make his own decision tomorrow as well. he's very well respected. going to be very hard for the conservative movement to say he's far too moderate. >> john: zeke miller, it is a pleasure to have you here. we love you in new york, boston. you're always welcome. a few yankee fans may not like you but we mets fans treasure our boston fans. follow you at zeke j miller on the "buzzfeed." thanks for coming in. >> thanks for ha
traditionally vote for the democratic candidate. >> pelley: thank you, we're going to switch over to boston and speak to ed gillespie who is one of mitt romney's autopsy communicatio --top communicatio. thank you for being with us. it looks like ohio is leaning the president's way. i wonder how you see ohio. >> we feel pretty good about ohio, scott. the fact is where you look where the turnout is highest, we have great turnout in republican leading areas. we were able to shave 263,000 votes in the early vote in the absentee ballots from the advantage that president obama enjoyed over senator mccain in 2008. in the diminishment of the democrats early vote advantage, our republican intensity and what we've been seeing in the polls relative to independent voters in ohio, we feel like it's very much in our side tonight when i look at where these votes are coming in from we also female good about thal -- feel good about the numbers in the county and precincts and need to carry with big numbers and we're doing that tonight. >> pelley: one of the swing states we do not have enough information to
, and one in pennsylvania. joined now by peter hamby live at the romney headquarters in boston, massachusetts. peter, these are sort of late additions to the schedule. . >> yeah, and travel is the best indicator of a campaign's thinking. we've known that pennsylvania sort of last-minute gamble/insurance policy for the romney campaign. 96% of the vote is on the table there today, because there isn't really early voting. but the ohio travel jumped out at me and paul ryan is also going to ohio today, john. this signals to me that they are nervous about ohio, as they have been. but they're just a little more nervous in these closing days. but, you know, romney himself, of course, is projecting confidence outwardly. check out this rally last night in new hampshire that pulled 12,000 people. this is what he said. >> we have known many long days and short nights, and now we're close. the door to a brighter future is there. it's open. it's waiting for us. i need your vote. i need your help. walk with me. walk together. tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> there is, john, an air of anxi

of mitt romney serving under president obama. according to the "boston herald" there's a lot of buzz, maybe a little buzz, about a possible cabinet position for the former massachusetts governor. >> it's just an interesting talker, right? >> the president did offer to sit down with mitt romney during his victory speech and he's already proposed creating a new secretary of business cabinet position, something romney dismissed during the campaign. mitt romney's close friend and adviser tom raft says quote, if there were other areas of service, i think he, romney, will look at all of them. mitt romney's father did go into the cabinet after george romney was governor he was secretary of housing and urban development under richard nixon and you know how much mitt romney loves his father and respects him. and i do expect he will be involved with this country going forward. >> you just wonder how. i don't know that -- we'll see. all right, 19 -- 20 minutes past the hour. it might be time to rename black friday. why? because it's not even on friday anymore. the new york daily news says this,
in the edwards school in boston, i use these examples because there are examples where we see things work, then let's use it to engage kids. we know if kids are engaged in music, they don't drop out. we know if you actually figure out what will spark an interest in kids whether it's robot particulars, for me it was civics because i was a social studies teacher, arts, physical education, sports, if you spark an interest in an add less sent, they'll stay. >> i'll go a step further. it seems like there was a time, randi, where parents were at fault. the schools are doing what they can, now it's parents, parents, parents. now it's teachers. they're insufficient, inadequate. we can't have them making living wages or any of those kinds of things. >> right. really, really important but we're going to bash them and we don't want to hear their voice. >> it feels like not only do you need these kinds of things to keep students engaged, but teachers in order to feel excited and make a difference, you can't have 50 kids in a classroom and be teaching to a standardized test and feel at all points like
manhattan, greenwich, where people have just accumulated -- boston, wherever, just remarkable wealth, vast sums of wealth. the land and gentry. and you sit there and go, you know what? these people that live in these mansions and have private jets and live an extraordinary life like few americans lived 30 years ago, they can probably deal with a 20% tax rate on capital gains instead of 15%. i don't think that's going to wreck the economy. and i think there are a lot of republicans that are saying what a few of us were saying after the election. bill kristol said it. so tell me again, why are we fighting and risking our majorities, protecting billionaires that are hedge fund guys who are paying 14% tax rates? >> walk two blocks from this street, fifth avenue between this building and 57th street, and the storefronts on fifth avenue. anybody who can go into those storefronts and purchase things in those storefronts are not going to be damaged by these tax reforms that we've been talking about. they're not going to be damaged. >> by the way, the storefronts aren't going to be damaged by raisi

heard from mitt romney on his campaign charter heading into boston last night. he thought he was going to win too. he said he had no regrets and was proud of his campaign. but as for why this campaign went down in defeat, that adviser tells me that they are pointing to what the obama campaign was predicting, they were going to have a good turnout in the word of the adviser, the obama campaign was right. as for the future of the republican party, i talked to a top conservative leader inside the republican party who said the gop will have to do a better job talking about immigration reform with latinos if they have any hopes of winning a presidential election in the near future. john? >>> presidential race is settled, but we're still looking at key races to determine the final numbers for the balance of power in the united states senate and the house of representatives. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is with us for breaking news in north dakota. >> cnn can project the democratic candidate for senate, heidi heitkamp, in north dakota, has won that seat. she's kept that sea
